look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12oz can poured into a shaker pint. Date on the can says canned on 9/26/13

A: Clear orange body with a soapy off-white head. Great retention as well as lacing

S: Hard to get a nose on this as its a bit weak. I pick up hops and citrus scents.

T: Tangerine and other citrus hops. Some resin on the back end. Some caramel malts to balance it out.

M: Goes down easy, but has a nice full body. Carbonation makes this refreshing yet doesn't burn the palette. Some lingering bitterness as well as some nice film on the teeth.

O: This is an awesome APA If this was sold in case form I could see myself drinking this full time. Super session able and refreshing. I cant wait to try this fresh. I really cant think of a pale ale that I have enjoyed more.

poured from the 16 oz bottle into my new belgium goblet:
(sunday evening surprise courtesy of local "sprouts" market which carries a nice selection of craft brews:

A

nice show on the pour. SOLID, at laset 2 finger head, thick and creamy. GOOD lacing. dark amber, not the bright yellow of a standard Macro that the 18 oz bottle recalls (at least for me)
LOW clarity - a bit clouded up

S: hoppy but not the standard citrus/ piney hop of most IPA's that I frequent. this is something else again:

T: follows the nose: heavy maltiness with a definite hop bite. this is GOOD

M: not thick or creamy like the head - this pours well and sits well on the palate

D: go for it! good stuff, nice flavor, rewarding buzz, all good here!
